“You have to decide that you care more about creating your magic
and pushing it out into the world than you do about how it will be received.”
– Rachel Hollis, Girl, Wash Your Face

One of my goals as a book reviewer has been to use my library card more than my credit card. One book a week adds up to hundreds of dollars over the course of a year, even at Amazon’s unbeatable prices. So I borrow most of the time, and try to buy only the books I’m 100% sure to love.

So I picked up Girl, Wash Your Face at the library. Within a chapter or two, I already wished I owned the book so I could highlight my heart out. (Yes, I highlight my self-help books because I want to remember things that are, you know, helpful.) Now I’m planning to get the audio version instead so I can listen to it in the car when I need a good pep talk.

Written in a fresh, fun voice, Rachel Hollis confronts lie after lie that she used to believe about herself, with the goal of helping other women overcome those very same lies. Have you ever felt that you are not enough? Unlovable? A bad wife, or mom? So has she. Hollis gives personal examples of these kinds of struggles and practical advice on how to stop believing the lies about who you are so you can become who you were meant to be.

I cannot recommend Rachel Hollis and her books enough. Her target audience seems to be women in their 20’s and 30’s, but I think all women, teens and up, can get something from Girl, Wash Your Face. Get ready for some raw sass and fresh, faith-filled pep talk from a woman who can’t help building up other women.

And while you’re at it… Girl, wash your face!
